Modified Topic Title To Reflect Issue - Hamluis


I recently got a somewhat new pc from my dad, he used it for a month and its sat shut down ever since until yesterday when he gave it to me since my laptop is ancient.

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.130318-1533)
           Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: eMachines
       System Model: EL1333G
               BIOS: )Phoenix - Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00PG
          Processor: AMD Athlon™ Processor LE-1660, ~2.8GHz
             Memory: 2048MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 1790MB RAM
          Page File: 1518MB used, 5272MB available
        Windows Dir: C:\Windows
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
   User DPI Setting: Using System DPI
 System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)
    DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled
     DxDiag Version: 6.01.7601.17514 32bit Unicode

Quite better specs than my 7 year old laptop, which clocks at 1.8 ghz and no video. 

HOWEVER, the problem is thus-

Games that run at 40 fps or more on my laptop (latitude d230), such as dont starve or EVE online, run at 15 fps or LESS on my BETTER desktop. I reset EVERYTHING when I got it, ive ran v and mal scans, defragged, the works. What on earth could be the problem??

If you go online and look for reviews for the integrated graphics you will find that this is not a very good graphics "card".  If you are serious about playing games you should invest in a good dedicated graphics card.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

In terms of improving the performance in games, upgrading the graphics will be a difficult because of the half-sized slot and the low wattage power supply which cannot be upgraded easily due to it's form factor.

As stated, laptops are very difficult to upgrade. Either parts are soldered, or incompatible. Are you saying that your laptop is slower than your current desktop? What are the specs on your desktop?
